“It was the first moment I felt like I had real influence. It was special because, when you have depression, you don’t feel like much of what you do has an impact on the world.”
YoungMinds Activist 2017
Our YoungMinds Activist Program is a three-year program structured around the themes of Involve, Develop & Progress. Throughout this time, our Activists will learn new skills, immerse themselves in campaigning for better youth mental health and gain experience and insight to help discover interests and talents. YoungMinds Activists join a community of like-minded young people campaigning for change, and are able to stay in touch with each other long-past the three years, with our Activist Alumni Program.
